The Leaders ofthe governments of the FSM and its states, Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap, along with the CNMI, Guam, Palau, Nauru and the RMI held their 25th Micronesian Islands Forum Annual Meeting in Pohnpei State, FSM on February 15-17, 2023.

About the Secretariat
The Micronesian Islands Forum (MIF) Secretariat was originally named the “Micronesia Center for a Sustainable Future” and was created to serve as the Secretariat of the “Micronesia Chief Executives’ Summit” (MCES).
This organization had a wide spectrum of functions, to include Secretarial duties to the MCES, but also sub-regional development responsibilities under its strategic plan.
When the Leaders decided to reboot and change the name to the Micronesian Islands Forum, they chose to also change the name of its Secretariat to not only simplify its functions and to limit it to Secretarial duties, but to match the name of the Mother organization of Micronesian leaders.

Broadening Regional Opportunities
“There is much to be done on a regional level that can bring economies of scale to our region and make us competitive with the international market. While this is only a first step, it is a very important step. If we are committed to working together, we can, in a very short period of time, bring real benefits to our people and to our businesses.”
– President Tommy E. Remengesau, Jr, Republic of Palau
Chairman, First Western Micronesian Chief Executives’ Summit, 2003
